Nicolas Cellier uploaded a new version of Kernel to project The Trunk:

==================== Summary ====================
Name: Kernel-nice.487
Author: nice

UUID: 283f7f22-eafa-42f9-a04d-6919febb4471
Ancestors: Kernel-dtl.486
provide a modular inversion much faster than the binary extended euclidean algorithm found in DigitalSignatureAlgorithm.
As raisedTo:modulo: belongs to Integer, reciprocalModulo: belongs to Integer too. These algorithms have value outside DSA.

+ ----- Method: Integer>>reciprocalModulo: (in category 'arithmetic') -----
+ reciprocalModulo: n
+ "Answer an integer x such that (self * x) \\ n = 1, x > 0, x < n.
+ Raise an error if there is no such integer.
+ The algorithm is a non extended euclidean modular inversion called NINV.
+ It is described in this article:
+ 'Using an RSA Accelerator for Modular Inversion'
+ by Martin Seysen. See http://www.iacr.org/archive/ches2005/017.pdf"
